I've now started taking the Plaquenil at 400mg a day (many thanks for the dosage advice).
At the moment im just coming off a big flare, which normally takes 8 weeks of prednisolone therapy to stabilise, so it will be interesting to see if the Plaquenil assists berfore the 8 week mark.
I have been able to gradually wean off the prednisolone completely twice before, and if the Plaquenil helps control the flares then my new goal will be to replace the indomethacin with a less toxic NSAID like Naproxen.
So thanks to all your help I have renewed hope and a new goal for Easter.
I intend to stick around and no doubt pester you with more questions soon, but for now I cant thank you enough.
